Bish put up a post on BiasedBBC this morning laying into Harra
I just assumed it was a republish, but no I can't find it elsewhere
\\ Monday’s Today programme, which told listeners in no uncertain terms that
... “there could be *no insects left* on Earth in a hundred years”.
.. then the BBC’s own Roger Harrabin tweeted
... “Yes, insect decline is v worrying… but there will NOT be NO insects in 100 years,
That’s *loose talk* – unless we’ve fried the planet by then. Cockroaches will outlive us.”

ha ! dramaqueen Harra , telling others not to dramaqueen

If the EU has decided that a gathering of its opponents constitutes a security threat, would it take much secret EU paperwork to upgrade opponents to "Terrorists" in time for the May Elections and issue EU Arrest Warrants accordingly?

Russia could then agree to charge inflated prices to the EU for oil, based on a "Handling Charge" for EU Political Prisoners in some of their vacant Siberian gulags. The Iron Curtain could then be reintroduced, from Brittany to the Baltic, with machine gun nests and landmines buried on beaches, as they are too cold for German towels.

This might reduce the number of genuine asylum seekers trying to escape the merged EU&USSR, and would allow Tusk, Merkel et al to retire with a sense of achievement.

A boss at work 30 years ago was described as "jumping up on to his high horse, and riding off in all directions". He was not stupid. He would lash out at anyone who didn't support his ideas, and never thought he was the problem.

May knows she is going, but no one knows where. Corbyn doesn't know where he is going, but many in his Party will go if he doesn't. Neither of them can lead their Parties, but their Parties can not make them go.

Meanwhile, the EU is going to Carry on Dictating, as it always has, which must be reassuring for those that want to remain without a change in leadership or direction from the EU. I don't, but it is a mess, and we need to get out.

Confused about what Westminster is doing ?
The mass of the establishment MPs, Lords, civil servants, media etc. were astonished the people voted for Brexit
... so basically they want to ind back time and make t go away
Mrs May is like that ..everyone can see her deal is really Remain

The second category is the pragmatic MPs, who know they will lose their seat if the public are diddled out of proper Brexit

The third category is Farage, Pearson, JRM and the proper Brexiteers

As I said it's like the family having a vote on what Christmas dinner should be , the vegans lost, the meat eaters won, but now the vegans are trying to tell us what meat we should choose

Just vegans/remainers get lost, you lost'll get your turn when you win a referendum

I also don't buy any explanation that suggests May risks further political humiliation for essentially no gain.

She has already announced that she will not be the Prime Minister seeking re-election next time around. Whatever form BREXIT takes, she can claim to have done her best, and point at all those that actively opposed her. Corbyn will NOT be top of the list

What price free speech in the EU?

"EU shuts down Puigdemont event over ‘security threats’
Parliament says there is ‘a high risk that the proposed event could pose a threat to the maintenance of public order.’"

From George Soros, of all people:

"It is difficult to see how the pro-European parties can emerge victorious from the election in May unless they put Europe’s interests ahead of their own. One can still make a case for preserving the EU in order radically to reinvent it. But that would require a change of heart in the EU. The current leadership is reminiscent of the politburo when the Soviet Union collapsed – continuing to issue ukazes as if they were still relevant."
